Ruud Van Empel

Another great artist I found very inspiring: Ruud Van Empel, right now at the STUX Gallery in New York.
The first batch here is from the World, Moon and Dawn series.

The serie below is called "souvenir". I love the atmosphere, and I love the still lives. Would be great to do a catalog or an editorial like this... Just things, no obvious structure, no focal point, it's not telling you what to look at first, or second. It's pretty much how I would normally define a bad styling job, which is why it's brilliant (to me) !!

I can't help thinking of how to translate this into my world (art direction). Ideas, ideas, ideas!!!
Van Cleef & Arpels did something in the same direction - a perfect green environment with more than perfect people pasted in it.
